Cute! / Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler having fun at Camp Bob at Kanuga!

New Jersey's gown was STUNNING... especially in motion. She was an absolute vision and I was really surprised she didn't make the top five.

Love this casual outfit worn by new Miss Teen USA Logan West in her "day after" photoshoot at Atlantis... particularly her shoes! www.pageantupdate...

Miss Teen USA 2012 top five fashion... far and away my favourite gown was Oklahoma's, followed by WV. Loved the way OK's gown flowed, worked perfectly for her modelesque strut. We've seen WV's gown before but I have no issues with "classics" when they suit a contestant so perfectly! Best of the rest... Montana & Texas... but they didn't make the top 16 :( See the semi-finalists' gowns at www.pageantupdate...

Autumn did indeed look stunning... this gown was amazing live on stage! www.pageantupdate... /Love this custom beaded gown at Miss USA

Is fat worse than...? / as someone who was obese for most of her life... I totally feel this. Society discriminates against the obese in a way that is generally unacceptable for other reasons. It must stop!

Although she certainly "fits the mould" so to speak - of former Miss Universe Australia titleholders - I think that Renae will be a force at Miss Universe and continue Aussie's recent string of success :D

Talking of Teen to Miss transitions... many Miss USA titleholders first competed at Miss Teen USA. In this photo from 1998, 18 year old Susie Castillo first hit the national spotlight. It was my pleasure to meet Susie at Miss USA this year, she truly is as sweet inside as she is gorgeous on the outside! www.pageantupdate...

One of Danielle Doty's favourite fashion moments this year was her Dany Atrache dress for the Miss USA 2012 red carpet. To quote Danielle, "It was a gold, cut-out dress that was very mature. It really symbolized me growing up and ending my reign." Read more pageantupdate.tum...

One thing I love about MUO is following girls transition from Teen to Miss titleholders. This gallery from 2008, the first Bahamas year, includes 3 Miss USA 2012 contestants & 3 from other years. Michelle Leonardo did not place at Teen that year, but she brought the fire on stage, right to the Miss USA 2012 top ten! www.pageantupdate...

Miss Teen USA hits the Bahamas in a month! Met almost all the girls in Vegas... let's just say it's going to be a TOUGH competition. www.pageantupdate...

In Vegas I had the pleasure of chaperoning the Miss Teen USA contestants on their sightseeing bus tour. The Teens literally rocked the bus with their renditions of Call Me Maybe and other songs... we certainly drew attention! In this photo are four girls with very strong chances to place: Alexa Zellers (Arizona), Ange Viscount (Delaware), Madison Lee (Texas) & Kendal Barret (New Jersey). www.pageantupdate...

Miss USA & Miss Universe Australia both wore the same swimsuit for their national comps! love it :)

Four years ago today (exactly!) Crystle Stewart appeared in the Miss Universe 2008 contestant parade in Nha Trang, Vietnam. Can't believe it's been that long already!
